This School Is Very Unprofessional. I Thought By Sending My Son To A Technical School There May Be Some Good Teachers There To Teach These Young Kids And Encourage Them To Learn But Honestly And Truly It Is The Exact Opposite. Most Of My Sons Teachers Were Way Behind On Putting Grades In And Updating PowerSchool. Emailing Teachers Does Not Seem To Work And Calling Doesn't Do Much Either. I've Walked In To The Office Numerous Times And Smelt Alcohol Under The Persons Breath That I Was Speaking To. The Security Guard Is A Complete Pervert And Has Watched My Son And Stood Behind Him While In The Bathroom. Overall The School Is Dirty And Has 3 Janitors Working There. The New Principals Have Made Unfair Dress Code Policies And Just Assume That Every Parent Can Afford The WT Logo Apparel. They also Assume Parents Dont Have Jobs And Can Pick Students Up After School Because There Are No Late Buses, In Which My Son Has Gotten Punished For Numerous Time. The Only Two Teachers That I Am VERY Impressed With Is The Two Shop Teachers In Architectural Technologies. The School Needs More Academic Teachers Like Them Who Actually Care For Their Students. BIG IDEA: Not A Good School, Don' Go.

Tech is a very good school for learning a trade and getting ahead in life however the school is too caught up in school politics to actually take the time to care about your children, and try to help them learn. The no child left behind act is definately nonexistant in that school.

My child attends Windham Tech. My child has excellent shop teachers, however a few of the other teachers lack the ability to deal with children with handicaps. My child is constantly criticized and treated like a bad child because of the disability. There is a real lack of training and disision making abilities in this regaurd.Some teachers retain grudges against children and don't see the efforts and the changes the child is trying to make. Some of the projects the children must do have nothing to do with their courses of study (art). They do have an excellent principle a Doctor Fred Ashton, who has made every effort to communicate with me and help out my child. My child was punched in the face in front of a teacher. She had every chance to defuse the situation before it exculated to this but did not.

I attended this school a few years ago, so I'm sure some changes have occured, but I think this is a great school. All of the teachers are very supportive. I attended before there were many 'female' shops offered, but I (as a female) was treated equally among the predominantly male students. Although the regular classes should have been more challenging, I truly enjoyed my experience attending Windham Tech. I think it's a great school.

The admission policy needs some overseeing by other professionals. It appears that the principal makes all the decisions there is no appeals process. Once in, the shops are well organized but the goals do not offer alternatives to students who have the ability to expand their horizons. Square pegs fit well as do round ones but a different one does not have choices. Structure and discipline are excellent if that is what your child needs. Minorities are respected and appear to be treated fairly as is the rest of the population female and male. Males are the administration, few female teachers, very sex roles divided. Females do females work, but males are in all classes as are females but males predominate male roles as do females in nursing and males in automative.
